AJ Landy has been watching big YouTubers like DanTDM, Shaytards, Bratayley, Tanner Fox, Tanner Braungardt and RiceGum ever since he got his first iPhone at the age of six. He “always wanted to feel the way a famous YouTuber would feel”, like getting subscribers, likes, and comments on his own videos, as well as autography-hunting fans. That is why he decided to “try and make” his own YouTube channel on March 15, 2015, even though he made his first upload, titled My First YouTube Video!, more than a year later on September 10, 2016.
In the very first video, he introduced himself, shared his goals with his viewers and promised to make weekly videos every single weekend. He further revealed his intention to post skits, vlogs, nerf war videos, gaming videos, and more. At the time, he was recording the video on an iPad but stated that he would get a proper camera in Christmas that year to make better quality videos. He followed it up with a nerf war video featuring his younger brother Hunter the very next day.
While he was not that regular in the following months, he continued to post various kinds of videos and mentioned not having proper equipment to record gaming content in a video in April 2017. Later that year, he started posting videos about a Greg persona. He celebrated reaching 50 subscribers on August 18, 2017 and in December, registered 1K views on his video RUNNING AWAY PRANK ON MOM (she cried).
He eventually started uploading gaming videos in January 2018 after his parents bought him the required equipments and made videos about games like ‘WWE2K18’, ‘Fortnite’, and the ‘Batman: Arkham’ series. He had been present on Instagram and Musical.ly, which later became TikTok, since the early days of his YouTube, but suddenly gained popularity on the latter platform for posting Harry Potter-themed videos during 2020-21. He is now best recognized for his TikTok following but continues to upload vlogs, reactions, skits, pranks and gaming videos regularly on YouTube. He is also trying his luck at video game streaming on Twitch.
AJ Landy was born on April 3, 2006 in Brooklyn, New York, United States. His father’s name is Anthony Landy and his mother’s name is Eva Landy. He has a sister named Mia and a brother named Hunter. While his brother Hunter has appeared in many of his videos starting with his second video on his YouTube channel, his mother appeared in the video RUNNING AWAY PRANK ON MOM (she cried), his sister appeared in the video TOILET PAPER GUN PRANK ON SISTER! and his father appeared in the TikTok video My son thinks he's Harry Potter.
He vlogged about his trip to California in August 2018. He moved out of his parents’ house in early 2021 and posted a room tour video on February 15th. He is famously known for thinking he is actually Harry Potter from J. K. Rowling’s fantasy novel series. On April Fool’s Day in 2021, he bid farewell on Twitter stating that he had “ended up as a Christmas Present to my “parents” 15 years ago” after using “a time turner in the floo network”, but had “finally” found a way to get back. He is an aspiring actor who has uploaded videos of his performances of reading monologues such as "Charlie's Last Letter" from ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’, ‘Death of A Salesman’, and "Peter's Plan" from ‘Spiderman: Far From Home’.
